Flashing water light - will drain water but will not make coffee

When I try to make coffee, it starts grinding and making noise (I think the pump), but then right when the coffee normally comes out, nothing happens. I can turn the knob and water comes out and it's acting as if that's completign the brew process. It will dispense water anytime

Something is wrong on the coffee cycle side of the machine. Check the brew unit screens and and try doing a preground cycle with out inserting coffee. IF water comes out, I would looking into your grinder a little bit and try increasing the grinder size.

If pump does not work then what should i priory

Need more information to solve your problem.

Does the pump come on (do you hear it?) but no water comes out when you make coffee?

When you select Hot Water and open the steam valve, does the pump run and does water come out the steam valve?

If you hear the pump running but no water is coming out - then it could either be that the pump needs to be primed. In that case you would select Hot Water and open the steam valve all the way and let water run out the wand for a minute or two.

If the steam wand delivers water but you don't get any water when you brew coffee, then either the coffee is ground so fine that the water cannot go through the coffee grinds OR the filter disc may be plugged up. Try grinding coarser and try removing the filter disc and cleaning it with a toothbrush - hold the disc to the light and verify that you can see through all the tiny holes.

If it pumps water for coffee but you don't get water out the steam pipe, then the steam wand may be plugged with hardened milk - in that case remove the plastic frother and soak it and clean it. Also use a bent paperclip to clean the hole in the end of the chrome steam pipe.

If the pump doesn't run at all and you don't hear any pump noises ever - then either the pump has failed or has a loose wire.

Coffee not brewing after grinding

After grinding did you hear the brew group goes up and pump start? If you hear the pump start and stopped, itis blockage in the brewunit metal screen. Just needs cleaning.
If you don't hear the pump starting, the problem is with the faulty micro switch inside the gearbox , that is behind the plate of brewunit.(service center job)

No coffee is coming out of the machine...

in our machine we wanted a stronger coffee so we adjusted the auto grinder (where the coffee beans are housed) to the finest setting thinking the finer the grind the stronger the coffee...after doing this the machine wouldnot make coffee...we sent it away while still under warranty and the tech said that the grind selection was too low so they just turned the grinder back up a notch and it worked fine ....dont know if this will help but it's worth a try!

Water pump not working

Can you please try firstly making a "Pre ground Coffee" on your coffee machine by selecting the pre ground button and making a coffee without coffee in the bypass.

If that doesnt work, let me know.

If it does, open slide the grinder right up to the coursest setting and see if water comes through.

Once again if that doesnt work let me know.

Part 2 -Flashing water light - will drain water but will not make coffee

Blinking light often means pump is not delivering water. Possible blockage from corrosion. Can also mean a valve blocked.
Do you hear the pump run?
